Mycotic abdominal aortic aneurysms (MAAAs) are rare entities accounting for 0.65-2% of aortic aneurysms. Campylobacter fetus has a tropism for vascular tissue and is a rare cause of mycotic aneurysm. We present a 73-year-old male patient with contained rupture of a MAAA caused by C. fetus, successfully treated with endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) and… (More)
We report a patient who presented with a urothelial carcinoma recurrence developed nine years after radical cystoprostatectomy, related to Muir-Torre syndrome.
The aim of this paper is to report the clinicopathological data of one case of mixed metastatic adenoneuroendocrine carcinoma (MANEC) in the caecum; less than ten cases of which have been described in the English literature. A 57-year-old male patient presented with a mixed adenoneuroendocrine carcinoma (MANEC) of the caecum with liver metastasis and… (More)
We present the case of a 75-year-old patient with asymptomatic gastro-duodenal artery aneurism (GAA) that was coiled through the left femoral artery. The gastro-duodenal artery (GDA) was then embolized. Following the intervention, the patient's left foot became cold. A sub-acute ischemia caused by a stenotic effect in the left external iliac artery and by… (More)
Infectious aneurysm is a rare entity associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Current knowledge on pathogenesis, outcome, diagnosis, management, and follow-up remains debatable. We report the case of a patient with Streptococcus pyogenes aneurysm who was successfully treated with a homograft implant and discuss microbiological characteristics,… (More)
Chronic aortoiliac occlusive disease most often affects the common iliac arteries and distal aorta but can progress all the way to the renal arteries, occluding the inferior mesenteric artery. A compensatory collateral network typically develops to preserve lower body perfusion. Inadvertent compression or ligation of such collaterals during surgery can have… (More)
